Mommy wars, anyone?

Sheesh, when will we stop eating our own? Why can't we just let other Mom's live their own lives? Why is it anyone's fucking business if a mom chooses to put her kid in daycare or not?
This is an older post from Reb on Home-Schooled by a Cackling Jackal. She had recently posted that her little one would be going to day care ~gasp~ two days a week so she could get some WORK DONE! The comments are not all positive.
That is too bad.
I see part time daycare as a win-win situation in many cases. Moms, especially stay-at-home moms who are also working from home, can really use a day or two ALONE.
I have a teen, that I homeschool, and I promise you I dearly love those days when I get a call from a friend asking can The Boy come hang out with Alex for a few days?
Hello? I've probably loaded him the van before she got all the words out of her mouth.
Look, no matter what we do, we are all gonna screw up our kids in one way or another.
Stay at home vs. not stay at home, homeschool vs. public vs. private school, no matter what if mom is driven insane then the kids are fucked.
Think of the children. Please.
Don't drive yourself batshit crazy trying to be everything to everyone and don't watch Dr. Phil....he makes baby Jesus cry.
And stop worrying about how other moms are raising their own kids...it really is none of your damn business.
